This is a network for the friends of nature and the rural landscape. In Greece, traditional natural landscapes are diverse. They contain a large variety of plant species, herbaceous and woody, including cultural characteristics that man created during his long-term coexistence with nature. The main elements of these landscapes are the trees, which may be indigenous or cultivated, for timber or for fruits, and characterize the environment where humans live and activate.
This website serves as a forum for exchanging information and holding open discussions for subjects related with conservation and maintenance of traditional agroforestry systems as well as the creation of new ones in a sustainable natural environment.
